Subject: The Eleven
I have been completely addicted to this version of The Eleven ever since it was featured as Jam of the Week at dead.net.
The China Cat Sunflower and Bid You Goodnight snippets are a delight. Overall this version is really delightfull, it starts so laid-back before going on to the usual madness. And the vocals are crystal clear too.
And there's also Pigpen playing organ, something not very common around this time, when he used to sit out in most of the complex songs. To me, to hear him play organ in The Eleven brings me to tears as it reminds me of the innocent pre-TC years when he was a fully working member (and not just someone that would stand behind a pair of congas most of the show)

Subject: hehe Jerry's On
In 1970 it's either fair or the greatest. This performance is the latter, at least from The Eleven through Cumberland.
While flawed on many levels & at many points, the energy of this is undeniably magical, particularly the NFA > Cumberland and the ending of the at first tentative Uncle John's Band. For me this is enough to elevate it to four stars, and if the rest of the show had been this good it would be off the chart. I actually prefer the warm, phasing AUD patches to the SBD, which has way too much treble, fixable with some EQing.

Subject: Mason's > 11
Ahh, to hear what happens between Mason's Children and The 11. Of all the Dead show tape flip space outs, this ranks among the most vexing. Spoiler alert: 11 goes all bid you goodnight with a touch of china cat before committing to a classic, late-McKernon Caution.

Subject: New Speedway Boogie in Big Boss Man
Jerry jam a very New Speedway Boogie type jam in the middle of Big Boss Man, would've made an interesting sandwich.
Subject: Description doesn't match playlist
Description does NOT match the Playlist. The first 4 tracks and the last track are poor quality recordings (Audience). Mason's Children is recorded twice, the first time is a clean soundboard track, the second time (last track) is a poor (audience) track. Mason's Children through Uncle John's Band is soundboard quailty and worth having. The rest is optional. It's mind over matter. If you don't mind...it don't matter.
Make sure you get a copy of the poster for this show by clicking the Deadlists Projects link and clicking POSTERS and copying it. MUSHROOM...I can say no more...
Thank you for sharing your shows with all of us, thanks for the love. Acts of Kindness make the world a better place for everyone. Thanks for the love, I will pass it on.

Subject: incredible mason's
oh my good lord...i always liked the mason's from jan 2, 1970 but this has to be a new favorite...what a fantastic mix on the drums...this mason's just pops and crunches and jitters like crazy...if you're just passing by be sure to dig this version! it goes to an AUD or degraded SBD at the end but you still have to hear it!
i love mason's children because my name is mason

Subject: the best Mason's Children?
Subject: Great show
This is a great show (pity you don't get the full show), if you have heard Dick's Picks 4, you will hear a load of the themes from this run at the Fillmore West developed fully. Thank God for the archive!
The first four songs come from an OK sounding audience recording (OK for a 34 year old recording that is), and apart from the tail end of Mason's Children, the rest is from an almost crystal clear sound board recording (the bass is a bit low in the mix, in my opinion).
Worth a listen!
Subject: no china>rider
I didn't hear China>Rider and there's some filler here I believe. Also, some of the tracks are muddy for a SBD with dead spots. But hey its 1970, can't complain. That being said, this show simply smokes. It's so good that you should disregard anything I said about the sound. Its GD at their very best. 69/70 was a grate period for such a prolific band. This is testament to that. Enjoy =)
